About this Event

Do you have a favourite piece of clothing that is looking the worst for wear with thin patches or holes? Join in and see how to make the clothes you love last. You will be shown ways to repair and embellish your clothing making them a delight to wear again.

Stitching is a great life skill which can save you money, save your clothes and reduce your impact on the environment. Hand stitching techniques offer lots of creative possibilities for repairing & enhancing your clothes and household textiles.
